David Park

I am a Senior Environmental Graphic Designer at Gresham, Smith and Partners, and have enjoyed a diverse career of working on programs for mixed-use, corporate, hospitality, retail and exhibit projects across the United States, and in China and Qatar.

My strengths lie in logical wayfinding, signage design that is congruent with its architectural or landscape environment, and design detailing.

The Sustainable Challenges and Opportunities in Environmental Graphic Design

College of Design & Innovation
Tongji University

ABSTRACT
This paper examines the sustainable challenges and opportunities in environmental graphic design through the lens of two projects implemented in Shanghai. The first, a wayfinding program for the Shanghai South Railway Station, is a study in using EGD to support and enhance sustainable behavior. The second, a signage and EGD program for a practice center at Tongji University, demonstrates EGD’s ability to support cultural sustainability, particularly in the use of typography and symbols to connect users and create a unique sense of identity.
